Chelsea will welcome West Ham United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening as both sides look to earn all three points in the London derby.

The Hammers managed to draw 1-1 against Burnley at London Stadium in the previous match. In contrast, the Blues suffered a disappointing 4-2 loss at the hands of Arsenal in midweek, so they will be eager to right the wrongs this Sunday.

Chelsea vs West Ham United: Talking Tactics

Thomas Tuchel will set his side up in a 3-4-3 formation and could ask his players to get a stronghold in the game and create enough decent chances to win this London derby.

David Moyes will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and might instruct his men to keep a solid defensive shape and try to hurt the home team.

Thiago Silva needs to have a good game on the defensive end of the field if Chelsea are to keep a clean sheet. Havertz and Timo Werner will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden up top.

The defensive performance of Dawson and Rice could determine the fate of this game. Lanzini will have to find a way to create some decent chances in the final third to set up Antonio in front of the goal.
